RUNDOWN:

The workshop will feature three different models, each expertly styled and paired with lovely setups/backdrops. As we work through each model, we will be playing with a different lighting setup. After instruction and showing you how I’ve set up, you’ll each have a chance to photograph the model in the scene with the lighting setup, with 1 on 1 help from me while you shoot! After everyone has had a turn, we’ll move on to the second model and setup, and the same cycle with repeat until we have finished with all three sets/models. Once we’re done with our setups, everyone will be set free to create and experiment. Pull a model from one setup into another, change gel colors, and play around with our accessories, headpieces, and even wings! I’ll be available the whole time to help you with settings, lights, and anything else you need.
